Stokes fails to take wicket, scores two on Canterbury debut


Stokes, still waiting to hear if he will be charged by police after being arrested over a late-night fracas in Bristol in September, was playing for Canterbury in New Zealand's Ford Trophy 50-over domestic competition.

Stokes batted at four and his dismissal saw Canterbury slump to 3/5 against Otago.

On the field, the all-rounder was dismissed for two and then failed to take a wicket in his nine overs as Otago claimed a three-wicket win. Stokes has bowled 4 overs for 26 so far.

Gronkowski apologizes for cheap shot against Bills
Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has a reputation for being a fun-loving guy who works hard and plays considerably harder. There was nothing about the play White's Bills teammates enjoyed. "It was unnecessary", said Preston Brown of the hit.

His selection for the five-match series is contingent on the Crown Prosecution Service deciding he has no case to answer, despite Avon and Somerset police asking the CPS for "charging advice" after handing over their file on the incident.

Stokes scored two with a pull before he was bowled via an inside edge playing back to slow left-armer Anaru Kitchen at the Mainpower Oval.

Stokes remains banned from worldwide duty while the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) decide whether or not he will be charged, although the 26-year-old is free to play domestic cricket.

Cougars return to Holiday Bowl to face Michigan State
A Ward tip-in nudged the lead to 15, and Bridges finished off a 25-9 Spartans run with the team's lone 3-pointer of the half. Michigan State and Washington State have played head-to-head seven times, with the Spartans leading the series 5-2.

Having made a strong start to their pursuit of 222 with an opening stand of 175, Otago's middle order collapsed, leaving them on 198 for 7 with six overs remaining.

On Stokes's performance he added: "If anything he tried too hard". The second Test at Adelaide sees a more even contest being played out on day one.

The cricketer was not included in the England squad for ongoing Ashes tournament due to an ongoing investigation against him for his role in a drunken brawl outside a bar.
